Four generations of Napoli family have created the heritage. Fiorenzo is the artistic director of the Opera dei Pupi and he has spent a good part of this life teaching this art and spreading the tradition of Pupi so that it will not be lost. He received a Laura ad Honorem “Theatro Pupparum” in Holland.
Davide is the master of artisans. He started carving wood to create the heads and the busts of the marionette and since he has became a master of the ancient techniques of metalworking. He builds the armour following the almost completely disappeared technique of "puntiddi".

Italy, CataniaFIND IT HERE
Catania is an important Sicilian city laying south at the foot of the Etna volcano. Its story is intertwined with both the volcano’s activity - Etna destroyed part of the city in 1669 - and some terrible earthquakes. If you are fortunate to arrive in Catania by plane, you will be surprised by the powerful beauty of this often erupting volcano. A visit close to its crater with its lunar landscapes is one of the most intense experiences of all time.
